    It doesn't look like either of the ones you linked. Also, AFAIK, Armani Collezioni and Versace do not have MTM programs, which is what anyone who is 6'9" would have to wear. If I had to guess, I'd guess MTM Tom Ford.

    I was thinking Tom Ford as well or a custom suit maker. I like how the lapels are pointed upward and that purple/ vibrant blue is a a beautiful color.

    It's not Tom Ford, it lacks both the minor signifiers (five button cuffs and ticket pocket) and the major ones (milanese lapel hole). It might be Armani Collezioni, as their Su Misura is made-to-measure, but regardless of who made it, you may not be able to find it online.

    As an aside, the upward pointing lapels you like are called "peak lapels", if you're searching for something similar.

    Thank you @Man of Wealth and Taste - I did notice the lack of Tom Ford features, reminds me more of Armani Collezioni as you said due to their peak lapels ;). I'm knew to this Men's dress wear jargon! But I am looking for a suit in this color. Absolutely stunning.

    It's definitely not Armani. Armani has welted pockets with no flaps. KD's jacket is not herringbone and is in a different color. Lapel shape is also different.

    @unbelragazzo Thank you for the input. I know its not those exact suits. I used those suits as points of references in regards to the lapel.
